GA – Lily Part 03

Lily’s Story Part 03
Synopsis
Lily describes her visit to her home country of Bangladesh. She talks about her apprehension and fears about travelling, about passing as cis-gender and the reception on the other side. She was pleasantly surprised at the level of acceptance and the lack of any hostility toward her even when introduced to a new family (in-law) at a cousin’s wedding. The trip had a positive effect on Lily’s mental state and calmed her fear of being rejected in her own country and communities. In the additional clip, Lily talks about being demi-sexual which is on the asexual spectrum.
